Oral albendazole for the treatment of cutaneous larva migrans.

Author information

Department of Dermatology, Bristol Royal Infirmary, Bristol, U.K.


Cutaneous larva migrans is becoming more common in the U.K. with the popularity of tropical countries as holiday destinations. We describe the increasing use of a new benzimidazole derivative, albendazole, which is very effective in the treatment of cutaneous larva migrans. In contrast to thiabendazole, it is virtually free from side-effects and should, we feel, become the treatment of choice for this condition.
